Yes that is the Expo 70 Full photo. Most of them replied which I edited so that others will say it easily without guessing.Expo 70 held in Osaka Japan in the Senri Hills, spread in 815 acres. The theme of the expo 70 is Progress and Harmony for Mankind. Date of inauguration was March 15 to September 13, 1970 (i.e. 183 Days) Exposition was called “Hakurankai” in Japanese.

The Expo 70 had 5 entrances and also the Emblem of Expo 70 is after Cherry Blossom with 5 petal symbolizing 5 major continents and Red circle in the centre for Japan. Total visitors 64 millions and in this one person is MGR. So MGR now known as 1 in 64 millions! Rather than 1 in one thousand (Ayirathil Oruvan)
In “Ulagam Sutrum Vaaliban” Expo 70 scenes, MGR used mostly Soviet Pavilion, Mitsubishi Pavilion, Rose Garden and Australian Pavilion. Some shots are from Korean Pavilion, French Pavilion, Fuji Group & Gas Pavilion. Night shots are from Telecommunications Pavilion. And also MGR used some shots in Ariel cableway and moving walks during the song sequence.
It took me two weeks watching the movie and pausing often to note down the pavilions and Internet searching to write this Blog. I hope it will satisfy MGR fans and gave some details about Expo 70 scenes. No body in the Website has mentioned the shooting of any film. And thanks to Yuki Chiyama teaching me the Japanese culture to me.
